Dish of the Week: Biscuits at Bar Mercado

If there’s one thing in the South that I cannot get enough of, it’s biscuits. Buttery, flaky buttermilk biscuits are the best, and they make ‘em right proper here in the South.

What makes these biscuits unusual – and so appealing in flavor ...

Come August, it’s bringing its house-made biscuits, cage-free eggs, and hormone-free proteins to 1085 Howell Mill Road. “Atlanta’s food scene is very diverse, but it has that foundation of Southern emphasis,” Holler & Dash culinary director Brandon ...

Erika Council’s cinnamon rollsPhotograph by Erika Council Ever since Bryan Furman opened B’s Cracklin’ BBQ in Atlanta last fall, he’s wanted to serve breakfast. His much-loved Riverside restaurant opens at 11:00 a.m., but Furman arrives at 6:00 a.m. to tend to his smoked pork—which comes from his own Duroc and Chester White heritage pigs—and brisket. Why not make use of the space, he thought. On June 3, he will. Southern Soufflé blogger Erika Council will make her Sunday Supper-famous biscuits, which customers will be able to customize: they’ll be served plain, with apple butter; with eggs and cheese; with Furman’s ...

What is the one food you cannot live without?

For me, it is bread, the staff of life. I need a French baguette or Spanish pan del día to sop up sauce. I need thick chunks of rustic Italian farmhouse bread to slather on real, full-fat butter and homemade jam. I need freshly pressed tortillas to assemble fajitas. I need cornbread to clean a messy plate of barbecue and beans. And, now that ...

Source: Washington City Paper Young & Hungry

Who would have thought the lowly biscuit could become so trendy? D.C. now has not one, but two pop-ups dedicated exclusively to the humble baked good. (Founders of both say they came up with the idea independently.) Smother them with butter, jam, or gravy, but a good ol’ bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit sandwich is the ultimate way to start the day. Behold, a breakfast breakdown.

The ’Wiching Hour: Mason Dixie Biscuit Co.’s Adobo Lamb Biscuit

Source: Washington City Paper Young & Hungry

The Sandwich: Adobo lamb biscuit

Where: Mason Dixie Biscuit Co. (stay tuned for pop-ups and permanent location)

Price: $9

Bread: Buttermilk biscuit

Stuffings: Roasted shredded lamb, fried egg, jalapeño chimichurri

Thickness: 4.5 inches

Cons: On its own, the lamb tastes ever so slightly gamey and dry. And while putting an egg on top ...
